Haha, our lass has many of scented candles around the house, feels like a papal mass.
She…ahem, we buy the yankee candle brand which is very popular over here.
I have to admit, most of them smell womderfully & also create a cosy ambiance of an evening.

Light, scent, and during the last ice storm they helped keep us warmish.

To lay back in the candle light while I relax in the Jacuzzi with my wife.

@ragingloli – I used to have a candle that was made of massage wax. It was pretty fantastic.

Also, they’re great for when you get through decorating, get’s rid of that horrid paint smell.

Because they are mystical and watching a flame can calm you down.

I have tall tapers on the dinnertable every night, no matter what’s on the menu. A pair of candles can add a feeling of specialness even to macaroni and cheese or soup and sandwiches.

I light a tea candle in an amber-colored glass holder in the corner window of the kitchen every single night. When it gets dark early, I may use a second one.

Two nights a week, when my husband and I read aloud and when we have our weekly movie night, I have candles in holders burning on the mantel in the living room.

Through the holiday season, I have decorative candles going in numerous places. All unscented, by the way: the fragrance can become overwhelming in a relatively small space.

Candles add a feeling of warmth, they can be festive or solemn, and in my mind they are also like a beacon or a declaration of faith and hope. When my son was gone, I lit a special candle for him every night.

When there’s a power outage, my house is ready.

We have candles around the house (dining room, entry, lounge and rumpus) and I have lots in our ensuite. We have a huge bathtub and love to share a candle-lit bath. While quite a few are perfumed, I prefer unperfumed candles. The perfume can make me feel ill. I love to have candles lit around the house at Christmas.

Not quite so romantic, but I’ve been known to light a candle to burn off a particularly horrid dog fart.
